Hi, my name is Laura and I have a sugar addiction. I feel like all of my posts have been about CAKE lately. But today, I am balancing it out with some healthy (and adorable) vegetables.
I have a giant cupcake in the oven right now - using this adorable GIANT cupcake pan. I had to get a bit creative, because as I put in the 2nd of 3 eggs, I realized. . .I had no more eggs. But thanks to Google, I found out that bananas can be a decent substitute for eggs in a cake. Who knew!? So, my giant chocolate cupcake has become a giant chocolate-banana cupcake, and I think it is actually going to be QUITE delish. Hooray!!!! (It can't hurt that I doctored it up with sour cream and pudding mix - also two amazing additions to boxed cake mix!)
Okay - now that I have educated you about cakes, let's talk VEGGIES. I rarely go out and buy a new stamp set. Seriously, hardly ever. I have what I get from my lovely Close To My Heart consultant (AKA, my mama!) or what I get for an assignment, or CPS sponsorship, and that is IT. Crafty supplies are rarely in the budget. BUT when Kim Hughes opened up her new stamp company, Paper Smooches, I knew I was in serious trouble!!!!! And when I saw the new vegetable stamp set - it HAD to be mine!!!! (I have a big collection of tomatoes, so I HAD to have that smiley tomato - but that's a story for another day.)
The stamps came in the mail yesterday, and as soon as I got the boys in bed, I got to work!!!! Here is the first card I created! I used darling Echo Park paper (Life Is Good) and the cutie-patootie peas, (which I paper-pieced of course!)
And now, HOPEFULLY the cake is ready to come out of the oven! (All those extra ingredients are causing it to take FOREVER to bake!) I hope you have a wonderful Tuesday! XOXO
